My deepest sympathy goes out to my Grandma, Sam and Aubrianne as well as Craig, Bev and Sheila. Uncle Rodney was a good hearted man. I have always had a special place in my heart for him. I will be sharing some of the photos that I took at the church. God Bless, Your Niece, Heather

Rodney was a friend. We became reaquainted a few years ago and I learned a lot about what he was going through. He loved God and He is with Him now. My thoughts and prayers are with his family who loved him.
